We would like to give a special thanks to our friends at 21 Wilberforce for partnering with us as we defend freedom and justice in Burma.
The Goal of the Campaign is to gather and submit as many signatures as possible to our US Senators and Representatives to request them to pass the (revised) Burma Bill that is under consideration. The Burma Advocacy Group believes the Burma Bill is our greatest opportunity to achieve:
1) an end to the human tragedy and crimes against humanity in Burma,
2) an end the brutal military dictatorship in Burma, and
3) an opportunity to achieve a federal democracy in Burma for which the people of Burma have been giving their lives.
Please promote the Signature Campaign in your congregation as well as with other churches and community groups who might participate to help pass the Burma Bill. We ask you 1) to share the campaign information in this letter and attached petition with your congregation and others via your website or other meanss. 2) We suggest you ask your youth group to assist any who need help to sign with the QR code by walking them through the QR process. Hard copies of the petition, which is attached, may be printed for people to sign. Signed hard copies must be photographed and emailed to Burmaadvocacygroup@gmail.com. This is another task your youth group might do.
